I want to share with you the three rules
that I have in order to accept an apprentice.
Rule Number 1: Don't believe me.
I don't want you to believe me
but I want you to listen and make choices - your choices.
If what I say, doesn't work for you, leave it.
But if it works for you and that's what you want, then make it yours.
Rule Number 2: Don't believe yourself.
Why? Because most of your belief system is a lie - it's not true.
And by believing yourself, you create all the limitations
that don't allow you to be what you really are.
Don't believe yourself. Listen to what you say,
listen to what you think, listen to what you believe.
And when you listen, open your ears, open your mind,
open your intelligence and make choices.
Rule 3 is, don't believe anybody else.
Don't believe them at all.
Open your ears and your mind; listen and make choices.
- don Miguel Ruiz

There are choirs singing in your head.
If you listen, you will hear the music.
It is the song of angels.

They are just noises, and even when
added up all together
they have no value, make no sense.
Strain to hear the song of angels.
Listen to the melody within your soul.
- Neale Donald Walsch

A city is a place where there is no need to
wait for next week to get the answer to a question,
to taste the food of any country,

- Margaret Mead

Listen to the cry of a woman in labor at the hour of giving birth -
look at the dying man's struggle at his last extremity,

could be intended for enjoyment.

Above all, don't lie to yourself.
The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
